In a nutshell:
In addition to your primary master, you can now setup a failover master in an active/passive configuration with the addition of the High-Availability option. Your two MDC servers only need to be connected with a dedicated ethernet link for handling heartbeat.
You can now easily control which workstation should mount (or not) your multiple volumes.
It is also possible to request user to enter admin password in order to mount or unmount volumes to/from the desktop.
When adding Tiger Bridge to your Tiger Store server, you can expand your production volume transparently into a Qualstar tape library. Tiger Bridge is a Scale-Deep Lifecycle Manager that automatically move stale data to tape to free-up space on your production volume. However, stub-files remain in place so you do not need to search a backup software to restore your data.
Adding Tiger Pool gives you the ability to create a unified namespace for combining multiple volumes into one large storage pool. It is ideal for those managing too many volumes. Tiger Pool is 100% risk free and completely reversible. No need to reformat your storage.
Tiger has build a reputation for offering the best Avid bin locking support. With the AvidFS option, you can literally copy & paste any project from an Avid system onto any Tiger Store managed volume to let your Avid editors start collaborating as if they were connected to an Avid Nexis.
Automatic defragmentation means your file system is always fast and fresh. The engine monitors the usage of your storage and use every idle opportunity to optimize the file system. As a result, image file sequences (DPX, etc.) play smooth and you can ingest and playback content at full speed!
